Candidates for admission into the Institution must see the President and make application within twenty-four hours after they arrive, or they may be denied the privi- lege of entering. The appHcant must be prepared to furnish testimonials of good moral character, and if he has been a member of an incorporated institution of learning, he must pro- duce a certificate of honorable withdrawal. He must pass an examination in each department, which examina- tion will determine which class he is to enter, and whether he can enter at all. He must promise in writing that he will faithfull}- abide by the rules and regulations of the College, a copy of which will be furnished him, and that whenever he is called upon by a member of the Faculty with questions concerning his deportment, he will answer truthfully to the best of his ability; that he will be honest with him- self and the teachers at all recitations and examinations, and that he will not enter into any combination whatso- ever against fellow-students, or any of the workings of the Institution, and that he will deport himself in a gen- tlemanly manner at all times. No tuition is exacted. An admission fee of five dol- lars on entering and at the beginning of each term there- after is required of everv one. This is for the purpose of forming a fund to defray the expense of fuel and the attendance of janitor. CURRICULUM. SUB-FRESHMAN B. CLASS.

With like coasent of parent or guardian, a student may pursue an irregular or incomplete course of study, provided he have not less than three recitations daily, and with one of the reijular classes. There can be no special recitations held for such irregular students. And the election once made cannot be departed from without special permission from the Faculty. Such irregularity cannot, however, extend to military duty. As will be here- after seen, that is obligatory on all. Bat such students will not receive degrees or diplomas; only certificates of proficiency in such courses as they may have completed. YOUNG LADIES' DEPARTMENT. At the time that these pages are prepared for the press, a Principal of this department has not yet been elected. For the present, therefore, no curriculum for this depart- ment is announced. But it may be stated, generally, that young ladies may pursue any of the studies included in the foregoing curriculum for male students, and under the direction of the same Professors.

MILITARY DEPARTMENT. This department is under the immediate direction of an officer of the U. S. Army, detailed for the purpose for three years. This officer is at present Lieut. F. G. Hodg- son, 6th U. S. Cavalry. The students are organized into a battalion of as many companies as their numbers will permit, commanded by the officer in charge. The sub- ordinate officers are students appointed by the President on the recommendation of the commandant. Instruction in this department is both theoretical and practical — the former by means of the study of the tactics used in the U. S. Army; the latter by means of actual drills, both as artillery and infantry, and other exercises. For the latter purpose, one hour each day in the week, except Saturday and Sunday, from 4 to 5 p. m., is allowed. Instruction is also given in various other branches of the military art. The College is furnished by the U. S. Government with two 3-inch rifled field pieces, with caissons, and 150 breech-loading rifles of the latest army pattern, with cor- responding accoutrements. A supply of ammunition is also furnished, sufficient to afford ample opportunity for practice in both artillery and infantry, and for target practice with small arms. Military duty is obligatory on all male students over 15 years of age and not laboring under physical disability. In the latter case the fact must be certified by a physician in good standing, in a form prescribed. But every student is liable to such military studies and modified mifitary duty as he may be found capable of. Uniforms must be worn at all drills and other military 14 NORTH GEORGIA AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. exercises. On other occasions they may be dispensed with or not, at the option of the student. The uniform consists of a gray coat, pants and helmet, of a pattern pre- scribed by the Faculty, with white belts. The entire cost need not exceed $20. And arrangements are made by which the uniforms can be procured promptly at minimum prices. Every student subject to military duty must equip himself within 30 days from entering College.

By an Act of the General Assembly of Georgia, approved * February 23, 1877, the Trustees are authorized to grant certificates or licenses to students intending to teach. These licenses are graded, in conformity with the provis- ions of section 1261 of the Code of 1S82, and enable the recipients to be employed as teachers in the primary common schools of the State without examination by or license from any board of education or county school com- missioner. They are issued usually at commencement, and only upon special examinations held to test the quali- fications of the applicants. STUDENTS WHO RECEIVED TEACHERS' LICENSES.

This College owes its origin to the Act oE Congress of July 2, 1862, entitled "An Act donating public lands to "the several States and Territories which may provide "colleges for the benefit of agriculture and the mechanic "arts." The Act contemplated the "endowment, sup- "port and maintenance of at least one college where the "leading object shall be, without excluding other scien- "tific and classical studies, and including military tactics, "to teach such branches of learning as are related to "agriculture and the mechanic arts in such manner as the "legislatures of the States may respectively prescribe, in "order to promote the liberal and practical education of "the industrial classes." By Act of March 10, 1866, the General Assembly of Georgia accepted the donation "upon the terms and con- "ditions prescribed" in the Act of Congress. The fund having been received, the interest of it was placed under the control of the Trustees of the University for the pur- poses of the Act. The North Georgia Agricultural Col- lege, having been incorporated in 1871, received from the U. S. Government, in pursuance of an Act of Con- gress passed in that year, a donation of the building at Dahlonega, theretofore known as the United States Branch Mint, with ten acres of land connected therewith. A contract was then made with the Trustees of the Univer- sity by which the North Georgia Agricultural College became a branch and part of the University — the title to the above property being conveyed to the Trustees of the University on the conditions specified in the donation, and the Trustees of the University appointing the President of the College, making a certain allowance for its support, and exercising over it a general supervision. NORTH GEORGIA AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. 17 It will thus be apparent that the office of the College is to effect the purposes expressed in the Act of Congress of 1862, and the State's acceptance of that Act, in con- formity with the system of the University itself. And the courses of study and exercises are arranged with that view. LOCATION. The College is located at Dahlonega, the county site of Lumpkin county, Georgia, a town of 700 or 800 in- habitants, beautifully situated among lofty hills in the im- mediate vicinity of the Blue Ridge, and 2,240 feet above the level of the sea. The fine climate and water of this region have long been celebrated. There are two churches in the town, Methodist and Baptist, in which services are regularly held. Students are required to attend one or the other at least once every Sunday, unless excused. The sale of spirituous liquors is forbidden by law in or within three miles of the town, and no student can go be- yond that limit without express permission. The nearest railroad point is Gainesville, on the Air-Line Railroad, twenty-five miles distant, with which place there is a daily communication by means of the mail-hacks. Fare from $1.00 to $2.00. BUILDING AND GROUNDS. The College stands on the summit of an eminence overlooking the town and commanding an exceedingly beautiful view of the mountains, which seem to sweep round it, as a centre, in a great semi-circle, at a distance of from ten to fifteen miles. The building, though not fully completed, is well adapted to the purposes for which it is intended. i8 NORTH GEORGIA AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. Besides the ten acres granted by the United States Government, there is as much more land held by the In- stitution, affording ample space for all military exercises. THE FEMALE DEPARTMENT. A portion of the building is set apart for the exclusive use of this department, and no intrusion upon them is per mitted- This department is under the special care of a lady principal, and all young ladies, while at the College, are in her presence, except when attending the recitations of the professors. THE LIBRARY. When the original college building was destroyed by fire a few years ago, the entire library of the Institution was lost in the conflagration. Another is being gradu- ally accumulated; but it will be a work of some time to replace it fully. Meanwhile the two literary societies have quite respectable libraries of their own, which, in some measure, supply the deficiency. THE SOCIETIES. The two literary societies are the Phi Mu and the Decora Palaestra. The young ladies also have a literary society among themselves, called the Corona Hedera>.

MONTHLY REPORTS. At the end of every month reports are issued of the progress and standing of the students. In these reports 100 represents the maximum of excellence in study. A demerit account is also kept, the condition of which appears in these reports. These demerits are imposed for unexcused violations of rules of order. If a student receives 100 demerits during a term, he may be sus- pended or dismissed. But every one is entitled to ten credits for each month of that term passed without a demerit. THE COLLEGIATE YEAR. The collegiate year comprises two terms, the first com- mencing on the first Monday in September and continu- ing until the first Monday in February, when the second commences, which continues until Commencement. There is no interruption of either term, except for an intermis- sion of a week or ten days at Christmas. On the second Sunday in June the Commencement ser- mon is preached, and the next three days are devoted to the usual Commencement exercises, closing on Wednes- day, which is the end of the collegiate year. 20 NORTH GEORGIA AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE.
